Cupcakes & Ribbon

This cupcake image is from Birthday Bakery, a hostess set on page 10 of the Idea Book & Catalog. I love this set, but it can be a lot of coloring! That's why I decided to focus on this smaller image for the Stamp-A-Stack. Colors are So Saffron, Riding Hood Red, and Soft Suede. I'm impressed with how well these colors work together! The ribbon is discontinued, but you could easily substitute another color if you don't have any of this in your stash. The Poppy Parade 1/2" Stitched-Poly would look good! To bunch up the ribbon like this, I put down a piece of Sticky Strip about 4" long, laid down the left end of the ribbon, then made a loop and attached the other side 3 times, left a flat area in the middle for the tag, then did 3 more loops on the right. I probably should have trimmed off a little more on the right end since it sticks out farther than the left end. I've seen lots of cards where they sewed the ribbon like this, but everyone who knows me knows I don't sew! At all! I do like the look, though.
